Coffee Company: The Coffee Story (2014)
A film that tells the story of the Dutch coffee brand Coffeecompany. The film leads us through the coffee process from bean to cup. From how the berries are farmed to the variety of brewing methods they serve in their stores. Taking their distinctive coffee table as a basis, we decided to tell the whole story within the concept of a table.

Mr. Emilton’s Cabinet of Curiosities (2013)
For the 2013 edition of the OFFF festival held in Barcelona, From Form created the main titles. In this film, we'll have a peek into Mr. Emilton's cabinet of curiosities. A mysterious room filled with exotic objects and animals he collected during his journeys. All of the speaker's names are incorporated in these rarities of Mr. Emiltion's room. We wanted to draw a resemblance between the 19th century explorers and today's creatives. In the way that explorers were literally discovering the world, creatives rediscover the world by looking at things differently and using their imagination.
